Back to School Can't Come Soon Enough!
Once the web heads figure out the nuances of this site I will start my video blog "Bill's Eye View," videos of what happens in the Break Room during commercials. Until then, for Kane-o's sake, I'll blog the "old fashion" way.
If you have school age kids you probably have September 8th circled, starred, and asterisk'ed on your calendar. Why? (Cue the Hallelujah Choir) IT'S THE FIRST DAY OF SCHOOL! This is the time of summer, when camps have ended and boredom sets in, that the parental advent calendar begins.
At my house boredom paid a visit today and brought it's friend injuries. My 8 year-old son wanted to see what it would be like to slide down the basement stairs in big rubber storage bin. The equivlent of indoor luge, or bob sledding. If you are a dude, you can see where this idea would be appealing to an 8 year old boy. The whole event lasted less than 3 seconds, began with a WOOO - HOOO and ended with a crash, a painful scream and a few big scratches down his back!
I am learning that this time of year is dangerous. I am sure as my boys get older their creative ways to idle away the hours will lead to more exotic injuries, yes I said exotic injuries. Look for a blog in a few years about how they jumped from the roof into the pool, but missed...it's coming!
I know I am not alone in this, what creative things have your kids done during these final days of summer that have ended in the Emergency Room? What kind of stunts did you pull off as a kid in the final days of summer? Think about it. Now admit it, if you saw your kid doing the shit you did, you'd lose your shit!
